Why Nintendo Canceling E3 Press Conference Could be a Good Idea

"I’m not comparing Nintendo to Apple Inc., but Apple does not rely on big giant tech conventions like CES. They do their own conferences, their own videos — they don’t rely on events that they have no control over. And clearly that’s a strategy that works for Apple."

I think this is actually sad i enjoy watching all of the conferences.

penguinhunter1884d ago

I do too, but I also think we might see more companies go in this direction in the future.

Biohazard88601884d ago

Me as well like ik they will be at e3 and all but this would of been an amazing conference with amazing games they can show Mario kart u new super mario 3d adventure game yarn yoshi and the list goes on.

kirbyu1884d ago

I wish someone would give confirmation as to WHY they aren't gonna do anything at E3. This explanation sounds good, but how do we know that's the reason? For all we know, Nintendo isn't gonna be at E3 because they think it's too mainstream.

penguinhunter1884d ago

It could be a number of reasons. One, they don't want their games to get lost in the mix of everything else. And two, it's expensive to have a press conference. Why waste the money if you think you can be just as affective doing online direct feeds...?

kirbyu1884d ago (Edited 1884d ago )

Yeah, but still, I'd like to know for sure.

blackbirdi1884d ago

They try to save money and use it i. Something more useful and effective ...the latest press confirence at e3 were really Bad the Nintendo direct is for me far better it keep you in Touch with gamers directly

kirbyu1884d ago

Maybe they cancelled it because they don't want more memes made about them.

deafdani1884d ago

Read. The. Articles.

Is it that hard?

Yes, Nintendo is going to be at E3, and they are going to do stuff. A lot of it, judging by Iwata's statements. They aren't doing a large conference, instead choosing to focus on several smaller events.

so Nintendo fans are spinning this into something positive, lmao

Realplaya1884d ago

So you are are turning this into something negative Lmao.

jcnba281884d ago (Edited 1884d ago )

I don't see what's so negative about it? Nintendo Directs have proven to be very successful, just look at all the coverage the last one got. You people seem to forget Nintendo have been in the gaming business longer than sony and microsoft have. I think they know what they're doing.


What so you mean everyone? Only gamers watch E3, not one person I know who isn't a gamer knows what E3 is. Whether it's a conference of a bunch of directs the Nintendo news will get out.

"Nintendo Directs have proven to be very successful"

Yeah with the die hard fans who own a Nintendo Product, the main ones who watch it...I think people keep forgetting that.

It's only after the show is over it ends up on news websites but even then it's only to the hardcore gaming community who actually bother looking online for gaming news.

This is there chance to have a huge conference to show EVERYONE what they have in store for the Wii U....why not take that opportunity.



" Only gamers watch E3, not one person I know who isn't a gamer knows what E3 is "

You have to admit it's become more mainsteam over the years then how closed it was before 2006

BattleTorn1884d ago (Edited 1884d ago )

I know, right?!

It's like how they'd say Nintendo doesn't concern themselves with what Sony and MS are doing.

It's bad business for a company to say they aren't competing. (with their competition)

It's like Nintendo is enthuastic with their race to the bottom.

Jek_Porkins1884d ago

I think it makes sense in a way, if you can do things cheaper and get the same effectiveness from it, but that is a big IF.

Also, I think it makes me a bit sad because I liked to watch all the big conferences and see the demo's and things like that. If they can save money and put that into proper advertising and still get their point across then I'm sure it might end up being okay, I guess we'll have to wait and see at this point though.
